    Lee factory crimp dies

    Anyone know of a shop around Indy that stocks Lee factory crimp dies? Iím looking for pistol calibers specifically. 9mm, 10mm, and 45 ACP specifically.

    Those are all on sale at MidwayUSA for 16.64 each. Shipping is reasonable and they have what you need in stock. Why not just order them?

    If I order on Monday morning, things are in my hand Wednesday afternoon between 1 and 3. Hasn't failed over many dollars of product and many years.

    I saw some at Cabela's in Noblesville a month or two ago. Don't remember the calibers. Might want to call before driving out there.

    If you load cast or coated bullets that are larger than nominal diameter, do not use the FCD. They size the loaded round and will reduce the size of your bullet. I load my 9mm Sigs with .357" coated bullets. My revolvers use .358" swaged bullets. I do not use FCD for them. Just wanted to let you know, in case you were not aware of the sizing portion of the FCD.

    Whip McCord is correct, the Lee factory crimp die with the carbide ring in it base, is nothing more than a cheat for people who do not trim their cases.

    Two things you never see, pistol shooters trimming their cases or annealing pistol cases.

    A long case will bulge below the crimp and the carbide ring will size the bulge. And it will also size larger diameter cast bullets and cause leading and decreased accuracy.

    Bottom line, the Lee FCD is designed for standard diameter jacketed and plated bullets.

    I use a factory die for rifle. Never heard of anyone using it for pistol stuff.
